IT is the mercy of my true Guru
that has made me to know the unknown;
I have learned from Him how to walk without feet,
to see without eyes, to hear without ears,
to drink without mouth, to fly without wings;
I have brought my love and my meditation into the land
where there is no sun and moon, nor day and night.
I have tasted of the sweetness of nectar;
and without water,
I have quenched my thirst.
Where there is the response of delight,
there is the fullness of joy.
Before whom can that joy be uttered?
Kabîr says: “The Guru is great beyond words,
great is the good fortune of the disciple.”
Attainment of the Self is distinct from attainment of a body.
“Guru” is birthless, hidden, and eternal, and yet is born with a human body.
Therefore, they who preach that death of the physical body
brings liberation offer,
a false consolation.
And any false consolation
never helps in traversing upon
“Path of Self Realization”
